Short summary
Narratives include several characteristics that make them memorable, understandable and enjoyable. Studying how memorable different ways of presenting information can be is a fundamental task for science communication in order to evaluate materials that not only need to be understood by the general public but also retained in the long-term as a part of the knowledge-appropriation process.
